J.R. Efficient


J.R. Smith started again in place of the injured Iman Shumpert (shoulder) and put together an efficient line of 20 points on just 11 shots. Coach Woodson would be happy to see Smith continue to get to the line as often as he did this game (eight times), although he'd like J.R. to connect on more than half of his atempts.
Smith is too good a shooter to continue only shooting 50% from the line, so there's no need to worry about his free throw shooting.
